NEW YORK, June 30 (UPI) -- Five pitchers combined for a one-hit shutout Friday night as the New York Yankees beat the New York Mets, 2-0.

Jason Giambi hit his 24th home run, a solo blast in the first inning; and Andy Phillips hit an RBI single for the Yankees (45-32), who have won three of their last four games.

Starter Mike Mussina threw four hitless innings, winner Ron Villone (2-1) gave up the lone hit, and Mariano Rivera earned his 18th save.

Endy Chavez had the one hit for the Mets (47-32), who have dropped their last four games.

Losing pitcher Orlando Hernandez (4-8) surrendered only two runs on seven hits in seven innings with one walk and three strikeouts.

Mussina did not return after a 63-minute rain delay in the bottom of the fourth inning.
